Re: WTF did you shoot today?

On Saturday: 115 (60/55)

Four pars are the highlights (should have been five, but I missed a one-footer on the 17th). My putting was v good. Hit some good chip shots. Not much to be said about the rest of my game.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Well, it (net 80) was still good enough for 14th place out of 22. But all I can think is, if I'd kept that 13 down to a 6 I'd have been 5th or 6th (depending on countback).

Next time. Next time...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Nope, wouldn't card a 13, you're right. I'd take a double par and let the handicap system square away what the ESC would be. I see nothing gained with taking that many strokes on a hole, but that's me. If you're not holding up anyone, then take 20. But in regards to pace of play, i say move on. Wha...

Corrected that for you... JPJ can't help but wonder if you are working with a damaged set of clubs or malfunctioning body... According to my app, my best with the 3W is 230yds (that would have been downhill), with only a couple of other instances of >200yds. My average is 163yds. Most of my clubs* a...

Have you been fitted? You could have the wrong shaft or head or both for your driver and fairways. Well, that wasn't a response I was expecting... No, I haven't. Mainly because I can't afford new clubs anyway, but also because my swing/ball-striking is SO inconsistent that I just don't see the poin...

...I sucked at golf. I was finding our new club home difficult enough during the winter, but now we're off the temporary tees it's just impossible for me. Take the par 5 12th: It was 110yds to the fairway (375yds to the green). Now it's 225yds (485yds to the green)! 220yds is right at the far end of...

Re: The Early Call

The only early calls I don't like are from baseball players. Such as when they assume their long fly is a home run and they start trotting as they admire it, instead of busting out just in case it's only got warning track distance to guarantee they at least get second base, or when the defence assum...
